As a specialist provider, we want to share our understanding and experiences with others who are involved in supporting, assessing or commissioning services for people on the autism spectrum.
We have developed a wide range of training courses from basic Autism Awareness to our intensive 4-day course for professionals, which has been quality-assured by Northumbria University.
Raising awareness of autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and improving training for front line staff in health and social care has been identified as the vital first step within the Autism Strategy: Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives.
Personalisation and person-centered commissioning further increases the need for training to ensure that people with ASC receive high quality assessments and support from people who understand them and the impact that ASC has on all aspects of their life.
Individuals can book places on any scheduled ESPA course. Bespoke training can be developed and delivered to groups to meet their specific needs or requirements.
